Mould is a type of fungus that exists all around us in nature. When mould spores land of damp surfaces, they start spreading and growing on it. Mould plays an integral role in breaking down organic matter. While preventing mould completely can be impossible, the only way of controlling it is to control the moisture in the region. Since mould only thrives in moist areas, keeping your property dry can help prevent any breakouts.
Some materials in your space are more likely to house mould than others. Consistently damp areas in kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms and basements can be the ideal places for mould growth. Materials such as drywall, wooden panelling, ceiling tiles, mattresses and much more can have mould growing on them.
